All Maxplus owners, emailed maxplus sometime back,they are trying to find the solution. They will revert to us if a solution is found! For your info Astro has spend Rgt millions to upgrade their smartcard and the supplier has guaranteed Astro money back if the code is hacked! Astro channels were hacked in Thailand,Malaysia,East Malaysia,and most of the neighbouring countries with receivers such as Maxplus and other models, surely the manufacturers will feel the pinch in sales of their receivers. Hope some brilliant people hack the code if not just pack the receiver in box and let it RIP!!!!!bye.
